Trailers to Borderlands : The Handsome Collection Ultra HD and Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition can be found below and they show the impressive upgrades made to the original Borderlands Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: Pre-Sequel which all now support 4K textures and a series additional visual improvements. Release April 3, improvements present in The Handsome Collection Ultra HD already available on PS4, Xbox One and PC will be delivered to current owners of the original Handsome Collection at no extra charge. Meanwhile, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is making its current generation console debut, but the current PC owners of the game will likewise be able to upgrade to the remaster for free.
In addition to being enhanced for the 4K-compatible Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, these re-releases will include the entire three major downloadable content libraries including Borderland 2 s critically acclaimed Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage and Tiny Tina s Assault on Dragon Keep . Considering the amount of content offered in each product and that The Handsome Collection is currently being sold for $ 60 while console versions of Borderlands : Game of the Year Edition has been listed for $ 30, these remastered editions will be a relatively cost effective way to experience everything the franchise has to offer so far. Unfortunately, neither The Handsome Collection or Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition come with Telltale's Stories from Borderlands which means that the election-driven takes on the series will remain locked out of the exclusive 4K party.
Somewhere along the road between Division 2 's repeated expertise and Anthem s sharp flaws, fans of looter shooters undoubtedly feel the feeling of fatigue, disappointment or both with respect to the genre. But the overwhelmingly positive response to the rapid fire revealed by these remaster and Borderlands 3 points to the possibility that Destiny -inspired shared world warriors are missing out on what players love most about Borderlands : good, old-fashioned co-op fun and oh so many weapons.
